Help for one month
The new Covid variants have resulted in an increased number of patients in hospitals and increased staff demands at medical facilities, the ministry explained. With the help of healthcare workers from abroad, it wants to secure healthcare at the anaesthesiology and intensive medicine wards and the intensive care units.
The Health Ministry should organise the medical facilities together with the Interior Ministry. The foreign teams should then come for the time necessary to secure adequate healthcare. The ministry expects it should take no longer than one month.
It has promised to secure protective means, accommodation and administrative help, the TASR newswire reported.
